I rate this a 7/10 because it doesn't have the online play it advertises on all pre reviews before the game came out. Even the Tennis star Promo video where they got Sharapova to playing the wii verson, the game designer said it will have online capability and you can create your mii and build its skills. So far Game play is great but needs the online play to make it a 10/10. But 2ksports online rankings are a joke for anyone who owns mlb 2k8 for ps3 would know because top 5 players have no more then 10 games played and thats after months of the game being out. Please 2ksports make an update for Wii so real players can play against eachother. I don't care if they make us pay for an update as long as it has online play for wii.
Make it happen 2kSports don't dissapoint more tennis fans

Played this game for about 10 minutes and sent it back. Maybe it gets more exciting after 10 minutes but I could not subject myself to the mindless bore for seconds more. I would like this game manufacturer to refund me 10 minutes of my life back.

Pretty Good, But Still Dissapointing

I rented this game, as well as renting Virtua Tennis 2009 and Grand Slam Tennis. Out of this group, I have to say that this tennis game was the most disappointing.

This game actually does have good graphics, and it has a fairly interesting "association mode" where you create your own player and try to get him to a #1 world ranking. However, even though this may seem interesting, the gameplay controls ruin it.

The gameplay controls on this game are HORRIBLE, and I mean HORRIBLE. Don't think that you should rent this game because of the other reviews you saw. To control your players racket, all you have to do it shake the Wii remote in random directions. And, to aim, you use the nunchuk, causing for a weird experience. The controls of this game totally take out the Wii experience.

The multiplayer is actually pretty good. There is the party mode, where you can see the rankings of each game. As always, the bad gameplay experience takes away from the party mode, but the good multiplayer experience is what saved this game from being a 4.

The Verdict: Don't rent this game, even if you're an avid tennis fan. You may think it's actually pretty good because of my 5 rating, but that's just for the graphics. The gameplay isn't that good. Unless you constantly have friends over, then this game wouldn't be a good choice.
